SIObject ProjectItem Clip
Clips are instances of animation and shape actions (ActionSource), audio and image sources (Source) and compound clips (ClipContainer). You can check to see the clip type (such as an audio clip) using the SIObject.Type property which returns one of the values contained in the siClipType enum.
This object also provides access to clip features such as its timing (TimeControl), any links to other clips (ClipRelation), and any applied effects (ClipEffect). In addition, you can get the underlying source on which this clip is instantiated (the Source object via Clip.Source) or the elements of that source (using either the MappedItem object via Clip.MappedItems or the AnimationSourceItem object via ActionSource.SourceItems).
Important: While the Clip object represents compound, audio, and image clips, not all Clip methods and properties are available for these types. For example, the Clip.MappedItems property will fail and report that it is not implemented for these clip types (ie., returns E_NOTIMPL).
Tip: There is no function in the object model to create clips from sources, but you can use the AddClip command, which returns this object. To access existing Clip objects, you can get the ClipCollection on the Mixer via the ClipContainer.Clips property.
